The Epiphone Casino is an all-time favourite of ours here at PMT - a classic affordable semi-hollow body guitar with all the style and grace of a vintage Jazz guitar.
The Casino has been Epiphone’s best-selling archtop guitar since 1961. Famously used by John Lennon, the guitar boasts a thinline body, single-coil pickups and comes in a variety of finishes. As a hollow-bodied versatile all-rounder, the Casino can pretty much deliver on any sound or genre. Semi-acoustic options are also available if this is more suitable for you.
Perhaps this is because the Epiphone Casino helped define the sounds of the sixties, or down to its elegant vintage looks and tone, but this is a much-loved favourite amongst the guitar community. Its hollow body offers a full warm sound and this is why the Casino has been popular within the jazz genre. Other artists who have favoured this guitar include Keith Richards, Paul Weller, Noel Gallagher, The Edge and more.
Whether you’re just starting out in the world of guitar or have been playing for years – The Epiphone Casino can be a great option. This is primarily because it comes in at a variety of price points which will either be a great quality starter guitar or a premium instrument for experienced players. The Epiphone Casino Coupe option is slightly smaller so can be ideal for younger players or those with smaller hands. With excellent playability, a distinctive tone and timeless looks, you can’t go too wrong with this guitar.
In comparison with some other similar hollow-bodied guitars on the market today – you’ll be getting a professional level instrument at a fraction of the price with the Epiphone Casino. On top of this, a beautiful range of colour schemes are available – whether that’s a natural finish, cherry, vintage sunburst or even turquoise.
Here at PMT we have a wide range of Epiphone Casino guitars available. We’d recommend heading down to your nearest PMT store and speaking to one of our friendly guitar experts to find the right guitar for you. Finance options are also available if required.
